Last year when we moved into our house, we found (as you do) that some of our stuff just wasn't required for it's original purpose any more. The TV cabinet which we saved and saved for in our early married years was no longer big enough to house our TV (when did TV's get so BIG?), and the cane basket I bought to hold our cut firewood was no longer necessary...since we no longer have a fireplace.
So I got to thinking...what to do with a cabinet that I can't possibly part with? What about a quilt station? The firewood basket fits perfectly into the TV shaped hole, and is a great place to store some of my completed quilts...and very accessible on a cold Winters night :)
When we cleaned out the video drawers on the weekend (in the lower part of the cabinet), I had a stroke of inspiration...
...fat quarter storage! Ooooh yes...sure beats pulling out plastic tubs to find fabric. I confessed to my DH...the muttered reply being something about my stuff taking over the house...he may have a point LOL.
...those gorgeous Cosmo Cricket fabrics have become a project! Hope to show you the finished piece some time soon :)
Speaking of quilting, here's a sneak peek of what I've been working on between Gardeners Journal stitching...
